Small number of provisional ballots cast in Pitt Co. congressional primary

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Pitt County Board of Elections says most people are catching on to the law by bringing their photo ID to the polls.

In early-June, the state held its second primary of the year. If you don’t have your ID or if you have a registration issue, you can cast a provisional ballot.

Dave Davis, of the Pitt County Board of Elections, said of the 43 cast in Pitt County, only two came from those without their ID, “Due to voters wanting to vote for a party that they weren’t registered as so Democrat wanting a Republican, or Republican wanting a Democrat ballot.”

He also mentioned people often need a provisional ballot due to address changes. He wants people to remember to keep their information up to date. You can check your voter status online.
